    Add cheese filled pasta and green chilies/green salsa to the usual stuff.

    Sliced potatoes with slices of yellow cheese, cream of chicken or chicken noodle soup, kielbasa sausage, cut up. Either cook in the microwave or in the oven with the lid on at 350F for almost 45 minutes to an hour. Serve hot with a garnish or green salad. (The soup is a substitute for Cream of Mushroom.)

    Chicken, carrots, celery, leek, salt, black pepper, bay leaf, onions.

    Bring to boil and let cook slowly over quite a long time.

    That is my base stock. I add rice or small noodles to make it a little more filling afterwards.

    I usually make mine from the left over scraps and bones from a roasted chicken, especially the carcass. I'll toss that in a pot with onion, garlic and celery tops and pan drippings from the roasting pan... let it simmer until the meat comes off and all the gelatin has melted down. Then, I'll taste and season and add more veggies - parsley, sage (or rosemary, or oregano) and thyme, usually a little turmeric... onions, celery, carrots, maybe some peas... salt and pepper to taste.... sometimes a little rice or pasta.

    You can make an Asian-style breakfast soup like Khoa Tom Gai (Thai Rice Soup with Chicken) by adding things like rice, cilantro and ginger, soy sauce, or even fish sauce. Or you can use lemon grass for an Asian taste. If you are not used to fish sauce, you might want to leave it out. You can find many recipes online. Gai is the word for chicken in Thai. Tom means boil I believe. Khoa in this sense means rice.
